This past Thursday I attended the Social Media Summit 2011 presented by the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Chamber of Commerce. There were several guest speakers who all had interesting information to share.
The first speaker was Kemp Edmonds, Coordinator for Hootsuite University. He was kind enough to post his presentation slides on the web, with embeds enabled, so here it is:
Kemp was followed by Brenda Garcia, a Business Support Manager with Thrive Solutions. Brenda started with the video “Social Media Revolution 2” and went on to describe the use of Social Media from the point-of-view of a small business owner.
Lastly we heard from Guy Steeves, Regional Development Director for Constant Contact. Guy’s presentation was primarily about permission-based e-mail communication and how it should tie in to other Social Media tools.
Thank you to the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Chamber of Commerce, the speakers, the sponsors, and the attendees. This turned out to be a successful and educational event.
